    I knew this should have been a flag.

    Lots of bad calls went both ways. This was just one of them and it happened to hurt the Vikings. Don't see the big deal here

    I guess the NFL is getting as tired of Lord Farve as we are.

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    While it was surprising that St. Brett the Gunslinger didn't get that call, I thought that the Vikings screwed the Vikings by turning the ball over time after time after time. But maybe it was just me.

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    every single play has something that can be called a flag.

    If the refs dont see it, its not a flag.

    If the refs didnt see that, we need some new refs.

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    Hey, don't kill the messenger. The fact is that the original poster is correct that the refs blew a critical call in the game.

    Sure, the Vikings killed themselves by fumbling the ball all over the place, but that does not make this bad non-call null and void.

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    That call and the PI that put the Saints in FG range were pretty bad.

    The constant turnovers made me feel less bad about the whole situation though.

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    That's indisputable, but the larger point is that the Vikes played hard (especially on D) & well enough to overcome those turnovers, all other things being equal.

    I thought the refs blew that game, and basically took over & decided the outcome, as refs do from time to time. I don't blame them so much for missing a call, as I do for inventing the PI at the end to give the Saints the game....

    Four plays before the missed RTP, there was a laughably bad RTP called on Hargrove (he was flagged for "driving Favre into the ground," when really it was just a normal tackle and Favre ended up on his back because he left his feet on the throw).

    The play where Favre got injured was a makeup non-call, and certainly not the reason the Vikings lost. The calls that went the Saints' way in OT were far worse than that one.

    The refs will definitely have a hand in the outcome of the Super Bowl.

    this forums double standards are sickening.

    If Brady takes that hit and we lose a playoff game you all would have been screaming for heads to roll and pointed out to anyone who would listen that Pats actually won the game we just got screwed.

    You all remind me of Don Shula the way you ***** about Favre. So he beat the Pats in the superbowl, yeah it sucked but it was what, 13 years ago? Not to mention we were treated to 3 more victories not long after. Get over it

    Also he didn't run to the media to talk about his injuries. You all know but refuse to admit the shots he was taking were brutal and it's a testement to his toughess and competetive drive that he was willing to get up after some of them

    I only saw some of the 4th and OT so as far as penalties go I really didn't see them (was working), it sucks when penalties affect the outcome of games.

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    with the way the refs have been calling games in all sports recently, this is a given. i just hope the calls fall the saints way, though, i must admit, i don't have much faith.

    (pun intended)

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    That's why you throw it deep - I agree that the Vikings got hosed on that PI call, but 1/2 of the time teams throw it deep, they'll get lucky with getting a PI call that probably wasn't even close. At worse, it will be just an imcompletion.

    A few of you are just worthless f'ing hypocrites. If this had been Brady would you still not see what the big deal was? I wish I had the time to dig up some old threads when talking about hits on Brady to compare and contrast a little bit.

    Actually, I want to expand on what I said. Those of you who say this isn't a big deal aren't just worthless f'ing hypocrites, you're worthless as human beings. You're partisan, pathetic, and don't care for fairness. You act like a great sin is committed everytime something goes against the Pats, but when it happens to someone else it's not a problem. You are miserable, scum-sucking maggots. You don't deserve to be Pats fans. Again, this only applies to those of you who think the non-call was OK.

    Re: Refs screwed the Vikings

    I disagree, it was a very dirty play, and was amazed Favre didn't break his leg on the play. The guy dove for his lower leg. I was shocked they missed this. Not a huge Favre fan, but they definitely blew that call.

    Worthless human beings eh? Glad to see you are keeping such a level head about this :rolleyes: They blew the call on the low hit, what part of my post or other posts do you see us not saying that? But the thing some of you forget is that the play before that was an incomplete pass in a long down situation that was cancelled out by a phantom roughing the passer call against NO. It was just as bad a call, keeping the drive alive. The Saints deserved the ball in that situation regardless, maybe a 15-20 yard change in field position but that is negligible given how the game played out. BOTH teams got hosed on calls throughout the game, one blown call is no excuse in the end.

    The PI in OT was garbage and Vikes have every right to complain about that one, but hey that's the NFL now thanks to Polian. Besides, the Vikings had a chance to avoid OT altogether but they **** the bed with their playcalling and then the amazing Brett Favre made a boneheaded play that most high school QB's don't make. The Vikings screwed themselves, get over it. If that opinion makes me a worthless human being then so be it :rolleyes:

    Hey, same with the phantom PI call (faceguarding was it?) on Hobbs that ended our 2006 season, right? Our fault for letting the Colts put us in the position of one bad call ruining our game? If you said/thought it then, then you're not one of the people I'm talking about. But if you *****ed and moaned like many of the posters here, well, then the shoe fits.

    The nfl just needs better refs or they need to review ALL questionable calls (or lack of a call.)

    I see this kind of stuff every year and don't think games should be decided by the referees.

    A blown call is one thing

    an illegal hit that nearly takes the opposing QB out of the game is another
